About Christine

Hi there. My name is Christine, and I am a Licensed Associate Counselor. Congratulations on taking the first step towards developing a more authentic relationship with yourself.

I believe that all humans are inherently creative, growth oriented, and gifted-although sometimes those gifts go dormant or become overshadowed by our circumstances. My hope is to help you lean into your strengths and sufferings, so that you can build meaningful connections in both your personal and professional lives.

In my practice, I borrow techniques from art, poetry, and narrative therapies while grounding my work in cognitive behavioral principles. I find that creativity fosters deeper insight and empowers us to explore new ways of encountering life's challenges. No artistic skills are necessary, just a willingness to be vulnerable and take a few healthy risks in a compassionate and tolerant environment.

My clinical work has included inpatient substance abuse treatment, clients undergoing treatment for cancer, and counseling at the high school and college levels (including career counseling).

For self care, I love to experiment with different art materials. I also read and write fiction and enjoy nature walks.

Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
